With the track washed out over the weekend, many staff were up at the field at 7.15am on Monday morning to ‘create’ a new track.
We are extremely proud of all our pupils who showed tireless team spirit despite the uncertain weather. Congratulations to Grenville for winning Sports Day for the first time since 1996!
Well done to everyone at TJS for making Sports Day such a success. It was great to see so many parents taking part in races, supporting all of the children and creating the ‘My Best Always’ atmosphere that our school prides itself on.
“This is just a quick note to say just how much I enjoyed the Trewirgie Sports yesterday. Firstly what a brave and correct decision to go ahead with it even though the weather was not that promising. This was the first time I’d been to a sports day and I have to say I’m absolutely thrilled that we decided to move our son to Trewirgie where sport is such an important aspect of the curriculum. The children obviously had a great afternoon. They all did their best and it was so touching that those who are talented athletes encouraged and helped others to the finish line. There were some great performances with children in each year group showing skill, speed and massive determination. Most importantly they were very good sports and whether first or last, they finished with a smile. It’s fabulous that they have already learned to enjoy sport and are prepared to give their all. This is no doubt down to the Trewirgie approach to sport that I’ve also witnessed in Football and Tag Rugby too. This Trewirgie approach would not be possible without the wholesale commitment of teaching staff and the support of everybody else in the school. Events such as yesterday’s involve masses of preparation, planning and very professional and efficient execution. It was a triumph and I’d like to pass on my thoughts, thanks and congratulations to all of you. I’d imagine Mr Williams might be a central figure in this – so hopefully without upsetting anyone else, a very special thank you to you. “

“What a sports day! It was lovely to see so many parents, grandparents and friends there to join us. I know that these events are very memorable and special for the children and your attendance makes such a difference to the children. I thought the atmosphere was terrific and that you all displayed the Trewirgie spirit but cheering and encouraging each and every child. Thank you. On Monday we saw children showing amazing speed, strength and determination. We saw children laughing, smiling and having fun. We witnessed real team spirit with children supporting one another, running alongside those who were finding a race challenging. They were such a credit to yourselves and the school and I am immensely proud of them. I don’t think we’ve ever had such a close result in many years either. Well done to Grenville for winning!” – Mrs Sargent
